never in doubt really on this ridiculously slow court and dead conditions with no wind indoors........murray who is also mentally jaded had no chance on this sort of court against a slow courts player like federer........

how apt that djokovic and federer the two biggest beneficiaries of slow courts and surface homogenization face off in the final........i really couldn't care any less about the winner.......

Tell us something we didn't know :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2: :rofl_2:

Laides and gentlemen, we may have a match here!  Fed up 5-4 and serving for the second set.  If he can hold, we go 3!
Good Luck on the Court!!!

All big points went on Novak side. Deserving and it shows why he is a number 1.
Classy speech from Roger.

Congrats to Novak and all his fans here on the board.  The #1 player showed why he's #1...

Roger started off really well but couldn't keep it up.  But I'm still proud of Roger for what he's done this year as well too.

The fact that a 31 year old Federer can go toe to toe with Novak 2.0 shows how awesome he is.  :cool:

Fed's game was off and the forehand was poor, still came very close to winning.
This is good news as Fed still is pretty good even in decline.

the funniest part of the match was Fed sitting on Nole's bench  :rofl_2:. I didn't even realize it. that's the hottest topic of the day on all tennis boards. nobody is talking about Nole winning but Fed getting confused/or whatever and using Nole's seat  :rofl_2:

how arrogant to have sat like that on the opponent's bench and have his luggage moved to the other bench........shameless........

match was fantastic though.......brilliant hitting from the back by both on this slow court.......it looked like a high quality match........

swish, the high unforced error count for your fav is because of the high risk style he is forced to employ against djokovic........against nadal and djokovic, you simply have to take more risks and that wears your mind sooner or later because you are not used to taking risks in every match........hence those errors........

so high error count is not ALWAYS a proof of low quality stuff........fedlovers need to note that........

What a match that was! Well played Novak.



Federer's genius lies in pulling off shots like these.. Djokovic's skills lies in forcing Roger to come up with high-risk shots on more and more points.. On the balance of a complete match, if Djokovic has Federer on the run, we know who will win..  :(

Well played , Roger! You are a brave man playing tennis with these young guns and giving them a fight..   :)

Congratulations, Novak! To consolidate his position as the No.1 for a 2nd year running in the face of such competition- Wow!

I wish Papa Djokovic recovers soon.. Nole deserves a blast for Christmas!!  :king:
